The marriage between Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z was rumored to get increasingly closer to an end, although the couple have just “celebrated” on April 4 their 8th anniversary since they got married. That’s what American tabloid “Life & Style” had announced adding furthermore that Beyonce took her daughter and moved out of the family home.

“After several months of living separately, Beyonce left their 45 million dollar mansion in Holmby Hills, California.

She needed to stay away from Jay-Z and rented secretly a nearly house,” said a close friend who revealed that the artist took also daughter Blue Ivy with her.

In addition, the same source argue that Beyonce (34) and her husband have been sleeping anyway in separate bedrooms for some time.

Rumors of a possible break-up between Jay-Z and Beyonce emerged for the first time a year ago, but none of them denied nor confirmed the information. Moreover, last month, Beyonce allegedly had a nervous outbreak while attending a birthday celebration, where she admitted before the guests that she was separated from the famous rapper.

Anyway, Gossip Cop claims that Beyonce is not “moving out” of the home she shares with Jay Z nor is the couple in the middle of a “marriage crisis,” despite inaccurate reports from Life&Style. A reliable source close to Beyonce exclusively told Gossip Cop that the entire story is “laughable.”

The blackmail situations seem to target the football celebrities all over Europe and not only. After the still fresh Benzema – Valbuena scandal, a new such incident arises as the Spanish media outlets writes that Barcelona defender Gerard Pique and his famed partner Shakira are being blackmailed over a sextape.

Shakira, 38, and Pique, 28, form one of the most famous couples in the music-soccer world. The footballer and his pop star girlfriend are hunted by paparazzi worldwide but now the situation has gone too far.

According to Diario Vasco and AS newspaper, the couple is blackmailed over a sensitive tape by a former employee who asked for a large sum of money as a condition not to make the footage public.

However, Gerard Pique denied reports that he and Shakira are being blackmailed over a home-made video with erotic content.

This emerges just shortly after Karim Benzema was formally accused of having helped three people to blackmail his French national team fellow, Mathieu Valbuena.

Benzema was arrested by judicial police in Versailles, west of Paris, in connection with the case, although his lawyers insist he played ‘no part’ in the attempt to extort money from his fellow France international.

In this case Benzema is liable for a five year jail sentence if found guilty of helping blackmailers get their hand on an intimate video featuring Valbuena and his girlfriend.

Vladimir Putin has ‘reportedly’ accepted a request advanced by Elton John after the famed British singer said he wants to meet with the leader at Kremlin to discuss the issue of LGBT rights in Russia. However, everything turned out to be just a hoax!!!

According to various media outlets, it seemed that Putin agreed with such an appointment since Elton John allegedly thanked him on Instagram for his telephone call.

The artist looks forward to seeing the Russian president during a meeting that initially seemed so unlikely.

Vladimir Putin is the initiator of some homophobic laws in Russia and of the concept of “homosexual propaganda” which is severely punished. Elton John, who is married with a man and father of two, said he wants “to drink a cup of tea” with the President and to explain him that “problems do not come from LGTB people”.

“He may laugh after closing the door behind me and may consider that I am stupid, but at least I will be relieved that I tried,” said the singer according to the same French publication.
